JET BLAST NEWS
WEEK OF MAY 23rd
As you can well imagine last week was a very difficult week for the entire Jet community, due to the death of freshman, Gio Pulido. We thank everyone who reached out to the school and the family; your thoughts, prayers, food, flowers, donations were greatly appreciated. Donations can continue to be made to Gio’s family in care of Yolanda Mejia (Gio’s mom). Donations can be dropped off at the school and we will make sure she gets them, or you can make them through their go fund me account at: https://www.gofundme.com/24xbewvs.
Gio’s service will be held on Wednesday, May 25th at 9:00 am, at the Holy Cross Chapel, 2200 East 18th Street in Antioch.
Congratulations are in order to the Band Booster, Mr. Phelps and the EHS Marching Band for another very successful Band Review. We recognize this is a huge job and appreciate all the work that is put in for this fun and entertaining event.
